- The 100-minute film was produced in four months (July-November 1979).
- Some "Lupin III" fans criticize the film for presenting a different characterization of Arsène Lupin III: he is seen as a nobler, more heroic character in the film, while in the manga he is portrayed as a arrogant, shrewd playboy (however the film has Lupin mentioning he was like that at the beginning of his career).
- Because the film had such a tight production schedule (production took only four months), 宫崎骏 claimed he had to alter the script in post-production to complete the film on time for release. He has never revealed what his original scripted idea was ever since, and has only expressed dissatisfaction with the completed film.
